“Ed Herrmann was a wonderful actor and a kind man. He was endlessly knowledgeable about theater, TV and film, and would generously share his wisdom or tell stories from a long and rewarding career,” the 33-year-old actress shared in a statement to TVLine about the 71-year-old actor, who played her grandfather on the show.
She added, “I am grateful to him for that, and will miss him tremendously. He loved acting and was the head of our Gilmore family with his strong presence and great sense of humor. May he rest in peace.”
Earlier in the week, Edward passed away after losing his battle to brain cancer.
